I admit it. I truly love inventing acronyms for routine daily activities. (This drives Sioux nuts!)🙄 But my staff used abbreviations in my residential services business all the time. For example…

We invented and implemented a PDS (Production Day Sheet), IQC (Immediate Quality Check calls) and an EEB (Employee Efficiency Bonus program), etc. You get the idea, right?

My most important acronym that helped me build a multi-truck, Critical Mass Business? “AAA” as in obsessing over this ‘Triple A’ mantra every day to ‘Service Engineer’ my employee’s interactions with their clients…

Appearance, Actions and Attitude

Remember: 80% of how a home owner decides if your company did a good job (and whether they will leave you a 1-star or a 5-star review!) is based on their RELATIONSHIP with your employees involved in their service transaction.

So, let’s do a quick overview of each ‘A’.  (Remember, you must ‘Service Engineer’ each ‘A’ into your employee’s daily routines!)

1. Appearance-  Will Rogers’ famously stated, “You never get a second change to make a first impression.” Learn from Will! How your business “appears” to a new (or potential) customer will have a huge effect on how they view your work. (Your front-line worker’s Appearance is especially important.)

2. Actions- Every customer subconsciously keeps track of your worker’s positive (or negative) ‘Moments of Truth’ (MOT’s) that are created by their Actions. These MOT’s start with a prospect’s first tentative phone call inquiring about your residential services. Then MOT’s continue to add up (or subtract) as your customer encounters more of your employee’s ‘Actions’.

What happens when you have 100’s of positive MOT’s (Actions) ‘banked’ in your customer’s subconscious? We’re talking a glowing five-star review! (And let’s not even think about finishing up with a NEGATIVE MOT balance!)😲

Time to review the ‘80% Principle’ again!) Are you unsure who (or how) to hire? Three little words: “Hire the smile!”👍 HINT: You can train a Very Best Person in everything else!
